Marucci CAT 9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98

The CAT 9 Connect -8 bat is the one to pull off the bat rack if you're aiming for the warning track and beyond. The barrel-heavy feel should give strong batters a little boost in the power department.

Bat Benefits

It all starts with the alloy material when it comes to the CAT 9 Connect. The AZR material is not a feature to skip over. This new material brings the trifecta...(1) Better Feel (2) More Forgiveness & (3) More Performance.

In addition to the new alloy material, the new Outer-Locking System (OLS) connection point will stand out on the bat. This system allows this two piece bat to feel extra stiff while also limiting the vibration that gets down to a player's hands on miss-hit.

This hybrid (alloy barrel and composite handle) bat needs to have your consideration if you are buying for a power hitter that needs a drop 8 bat.

You don't rise to the top like Marucci by not taking care of your customers. So that they can continue to care for their patrons, Marucci offers a twelve (12) month warranty on this bat. If you buy with JustBats and have a warranty issue come up within 12 months of the purchase date, please shoot a notice over to our team of Bat Experts. The Experts are trained to help customers and can definitely assist in helping you organize a shipment to Marucci for a replacement.

Great so far The Great One Parent

Pros: Feel, Zero Sting / Feedback on miss hits, excellent Pop seems to more than a regular Cat 1 piece even though this is still an alloy barrel. I would classify as slightly end loaded, not fully end loaded. Saw many reviews and youtube reviews about how end-loaded and power oriented this bat was. It does have a slight end-load but the feel is not nearly as drastic as some reviews out there. My player is capable of hitting the ball hard but is not a "power" hitting. He's capable of hitting a home run but rarely does. He has not trouble with bat speed or barrel control on his drop 8.

Cons: none so far. I'm curios to see how the connector piece holds up.

I need to know if you guys will have a 32" drop 8 available and if I can pre-order?
Veronica Meza
The Marucci CAT 9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98 is made in a 32 inch model but we are not taking per-orders on the soon-to-be-released Marucci CAT 9 bats.

colbey Rodrigue

At this time, we do not have an ETA on when the 31 inch model of the Marucci CAT 9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98 will be back in stock.
Cameron
Is there a drop 8 CAT 9 Connect 30/20 inch bat?
Steven
No, one cannot find a CAT 9 Connect in a -8 at 30 inches and 20 ounces as this would be a -10 or drop 10 bat. The Marucci CAT 9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98, at 30 inches, would always be 22 ounces.
Cameron
is this the alloy barrel?
Nathan
The Marucci CAT 9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98 features an alloy barrel with a composite handle.
Cameron
How come in here it doesn't say "Senior League" but on the Marucci website it does say "Senior League"? Also, can a 13u use this bat? I know it has to be a drop 8.
Ryan
The Marucci CAT9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98 can be used at the 13U level. As for the "Senior League" designation, that is a term that is being phased out. To make searching for bats easier and less confusing, the terminology is now "youth big barrel" and then either USA or USSSA certification.
